Drive-in screening of 'Carol' at Bromsgrove's Artrix for LGBT month

A DRIVE-IN movie night featuring the screening of the film Carol will take place at Bromsgrove’s Artrix on Wednesday (February 15) to coincide with LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) month.

The film, which is a 15, centres around two women from very different backgrounds who find themselves in an unexpected love affair in 1950s New York.

As conventional norms of the time challenge their undeniable attraction, an honest story emerges to reveal the resilience of the heart in the face of change.

A young woman in her 20s, is a clerk working in a Manhattan department store and dreaming of a more fulfilling life when she meets Carol, an alluring woman trapped in a loveless, convenient marriage.

As an immediate connection sparks between them, the innocence of their first encounter dims and their connection deepens. While Carol breaks free from the confines of marriage, her husband begins to question her competence as a mother as her involvement with Therese and close relationship with her best friend Abby come to light.

Admission is £20 per car but it is suggested only two people per vehicle as viewing can be restricted. Parking is from 6pm with the film starting at 7.30pm.

There will be hot food on the evening – hot dog and chips (£5), veggie burger and chips (£5) or fish and chips (£6).

Blankets and hot water bottles will be available to buy on the night and the Artrix bar will be open for the sale of alcoholic drinks, cake, chocolate and popcorn.

The sound comes through personal headsets handed out on the night although with some car models the sets can be plugged into stereos using AUX wires (not supplied).
